The second year of A Week of Flowers hosted by Cathy of Words and Herbs is coming to a close.
Here we are at Day Seven and I have yet to include irises. I love Irises and have some passalongs I’ve been growing since the late seventies such as this Iris ‘Crimson King’. It was the first iris to open this year−by March 30.
On this final day of A Week Of Flowers, I’d like to thank Cathy for hosting. For an uplifting color boost this week visit Cathy in Germany at Words and Herbs to see florals from around the globe.
Gorgeously lush! Have a wonderful week …
Your irises are always a treat to see. And even prettier with raindrops on them. Thanks for taking part and sharing this week Susie. It has been wonderful!
Thanks Cathy. Glad you decided to host A Week Of Flowers again.
Lovely selection of plants and the iris is a great way to finish. Thanks.
Thank you Malc!
Another WOW on the color!! Just beautiful and love the rain drops! Thanks, Jane
Thanks so much Jane. We barely had rain here this year from spring forward, so the raindrops seem like a fluke.
Love these Iris!
Thanks. They’re so reliable.
Beautiful images, Susie… I can almost smell them!
I’m not very sensitive to Iris fragrance but will make a point to notice this spring.
I have a lilac colored one that seriously smells like grape Kool-Aid that I used to drink as a kid. (Now I’m appalled at that sugar-laced drink…blah!)
Grape Kool-Aid was my favorite, Eliza. Now I’d prefer it in irises!
They’re glorious, Susie!
Thanks. I love them.
Wonderful!, more blues. I love Iris too and just found a blue that will grow here.
Oh great! Blues are so satisfying!
How beautiful and rich these are, and so sturdy looking too.
Thanks Susan. They are quite strong.
Thanks Judy. Irises do make me smile.
Great photos of a beautiful flower. Thank you! Iris would have been a ‘flower of the week’ for me, but I realised that I didn’t know the names for any of my varieties 😉 !
Thanks Allison. A reader helped ID this iris and another. Flowers are lovely with or without names but I am happy to find names when I can and read the background of each one.
Oh, Irises are so uplifting! And they bloom mostly in late spring and early summer–my favorite times of year. Thanks for the memories. 🙂
Those are my favorite planting times too Beth. I never used to plant anything for summer except zinnias.
